Athletics-Rays Preview

(AP) -- Since the start of last year, the Oakland Athletics simply do not score more than three runs against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Well-rested Rays starter Nathan Karns hopes to help maintain that streak and post his third straight win Saturday when he faces the stumbling Athletics for the first time.

Oakland won four of six games against Tampa Bay in 2014 despite scoring three runs or fewer in all of them. The Athletics haven't been as fortunate in this four-game set, with their only runs through two games coming in Friday's 5-2 defeat. They also have failed to score more than three in eight straight in Tampa, going 2-6.
